Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

2 Answers

Digital Camera Malfunction

My Canon Power Shot A70 turns on just fine. The Canon logo screen appears, then the screen goes blank. I can't see anything. If I press the button to take a picture the flash goes off - it seems like I'm taking a picture, but the screen stays blank. The "picture" I just took does not appear for two seconds either. If I flip to the review mode, nothing appears. If I hold the button at 3 o'clock (one of the four buttons on the back of the camera), the pictures I've taken previously (not the one I've just tried to take) appear. Do you have any thoughts on what might be wrong and how I can fix it? Thanks! The screen is blank after I take a picture. The flash goes off but the camera appears not to have taken a picture.

I have the same problem and was directed to a website that sounds promising: Canon says they will fix the camera if in deed it is the CCD at no charge. Check it out the tn# is 800-828-4040

SOURCE: Digital Camera Malfunction

mine just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I had downloaded pixes to the computer, went outside to take picture and it started acting up. strange lines appear on the screen, but the codes are all there, and you can view the pictures that are on the card. no, the card is not full, the batteries are fine. I think it has a virus built in to start trouble so we will go buy a new one!

How do you fix a canon power shot A70 whose ccd has been exposed to sunlight? My screen is blank. Will not focus on anything..


If the sensor has been exposed to the sun for a period of time unfortunately it will mean a new camera. I believe the price to replace a sensor is pretty close to getting a new camera.

When I turn my PowerShot A85 on the Canon Logo appears on the screen for a second then the screen goes blank. I can still take a picture, but can't use the display. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Does your camera have a button or switch on it that says something like this: "LCD Backlight" and "On/Off" for the toggle switch that goes with that LCD Backlight?
If I turn off the LCD Backlight on my digital camera, I cannot see anything, but I can take pictures anyway. When I turn that Backlight back on, I see everything I point the camera at, and can take pictures without problems.
The Backlight helps you to see what it is at which your are pointing your camera.
Makes a big difference. And you can accidentally hit that switch and turn it off without being aware you have done so.
